Mrs. Erica Herrin from Rossville KS is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

All Together Now!

My students need a comfortable space to gather in our classroom. Many lessons and activities are done in a group, sitting together on the floor. I would love to add a large, plush rug!

My Students

Our school is Pre-K thru 6th grade. We are located in a small rural community and have 2 sections of each grade. Most of these students have been together since they were 3 years old.

This fabulous bunch of kiddos of 9 girls and 8 boys are full of energy and spunk!

They have a wide variety of interests and I can't wait to get to know them all!

Looking forward to the fun we will have learning this year!

My Project

I have chosen a plush, shag rug for this project. It comes in a variety of colors, but I wanted it to be inviting and not too distracting.

This rug will make our gathering area more comfortable and inviting for my students.

It is large enough that they will all fit comfortably, while still maintaining their own personal space. I believe this will help the class feel united as a group, yet valued as an individual.

It is my hope that a more welcoming area will increase the children's desire to sit together and actively participate in class discussions and lessons.

Students will also be able to sit, or lay, on this carpet during their center and independent work/reading times.
